Mahon, Regina (on the Application of) v Taunton County Court: Admn 13 Dec 2001

Application for leave to apply for judicial review of a decision of a county court judge. The claim was as to the refusal of a licence to the claimant to work as a taxi driver.
Held: Leave was refused.
Hooper J said: ‘This case and another case were listed before me because the Administrative Court Office have been receiving a number of applications for judicial review in circumstances where a claimant is seeking a judicial review of a decision of a county court judge to refuse permission to appeal on the grounds that the judge was wrong to refuse that permission. Other than in the exceptional circumstances to which I have referred, judicial review is not a remedy open to unsuccessful applicants who are prevented from appealing to a higher court by virtue of section 54(4) of the Access to Justice Act 1999.’
